Grand Ole Opry Media Reviews

A Trip To Nashville Is Incomplete Without It

A trip to Nashville is incomplete without seeing a Grand Ole Opry show, the radio program that helped build Music City and launched the careers of hundreds of musicians. Each two-hour program features different artists that range from official members like Loretta Lynn, Trace Adkins and Dierks Bentley to guest artists like Alabama Shakes, Danielle Bradbery and The Band Perry.

Grand Ole Opry Customer Reviews

“Country Music Capital of the World”

The Grand Ole Opry has been the King and the Queen of the Country Music World for generations and it won’t let you down when you visit! The stars are plentiful, the music is fun and easy to listen to, the theater immense ... what more can one ask for?

Enjoying WSM 650’s live broadcast on Saturday night adds even another touch of color to the proceedings! This is a life-time experience, bucket-list quality event. Don’t miss it!!!

“Country Music at Its Best”

If you want a foot stomping, hand clapping, laughing, crying good time, you need to go to the Grand Ole Opry where you will experience both old time and modern country music. The two hour live show features performers who have been around and are famous as well as rising stars. We have been numerous times and have never been disappointed.

“Ground Zero of Country Music”

As you walk up to the Grand Ole Opry House, whether you like country music or not, you know you are approaching something very special. This is the mecca of country music. Always a great show and a great value.

“Great Music — Awesome Atmosphere”

I have grown up listening to country music, and being a music lover in general, I always wanted to see a show at the Grand Ole Opry. I was not disappointed! The Opry was filled with a lot of laughter and an energy that you have to be there in order to feel. We got to see current musicians as well as Opry legends. There is such a spirit of family and you can tell that the musicians who have been playing there for years still have a great time. Definite must if you are in Nashville!

“A Must-See, You Won’t Be Disappointed”

We went mid August and booked our tickets online using a coupon and sat on the floor level. Every seat is a good seat and it is church pew style. The acoustics are great and it is so well organized. You will see about 7 acts and the ones we saw were all excellent. Some were bluegrass,classic country as well as modern country. You get a sense that everyone who performs there all supports each other and not out do one another and they are so respectful of the tradition that the Grand Ole Opry stands for. There is refreshments and food to take with you to your seats. There is a store to go into for souvenors. We were thoroughly enteratined and enjoyed ourselves. I would suggest booking your tickets as soon as you can, There is free parking at the mall across from it. Give your self some time to walk aroung Opryland before the show. You will not be dissapointed going here.

“One of My Favorite Stops in Nasvhille!”

I heard of this place prior to going but didn't know much about it. I was pleasantly surprised. It was beautiful inside. They had a bunch of great acts performing, at least six or seven acts. I loved the bench seating, you could see everything no matter who was sitting in front of you. It was just a good time and definitely a must see if you're going to Nashville for a trip!

“One Big Happy Family”

What a fun thing to do when in Nashville! Loved all of the variety in the performers, and since we took the backstage tour, we got to see most of them up close and personal. It seems like such a prestigious place, yet still casual and homey in that the performers seem like one big happy family. A must-do when in Nashville.

Backstage Tour Customer Reviews


We weren’t expecting it to be as awesome as it was. Especially since we are not that big into the country scene. We were in awe as to how many stars actually pass through here and the history it holds. It’s worth the price to go in...

“Fun, Fun, Fun!”

We had a great time at the Grand Ole Opry. Felt like a bit of history taking place right before our eyes. We did the backstage tour and loved seeing the dressing rooms. Four of the stars from "Nashville" the TV show were back there and it was great to see them up close as well as some of the other performers that were just hanging out backstage. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, we really enjoyed our time at the Grand Ole Opry!

“Hottest Spot in Nashville”

Overall, my tour of the Opry was one of the most memorable tours I ever have taken. The tour gave me a unique perspective for my first show at the Grand Ole Opry House that night. The curtain went up, the stage was full with all of the folks that would perform. There was an announcer. There were square dancers. There was a band. There were country superstars old and new. I was there, in the moment, soaking up every song, dance and captivating moment. For an instant this New York City gal had gone country, through and through.

- Sandi McKenna, Expedia


We were looking forward to seeing where the stars perform and we were not disappointed. Anyta, our tour guide had lots of energy and made it fun and enjoyable. We got to see where the performers enter the building, where they get ready, even where they pick up their fan mail. We got to walk on stage too. Wish we had been able to stick around to see a performance. Next time for sure!
